Ireland prides itself on the achievements and influence of its people through the ages, and white many Irish figures in the arts (playwrights, artists) are well known, we have been less adept at hailing our scientific pioneers. The purpose of this book is to redress this balance somewhat by revealing an as yet untold story of Irish influence. This volume contains biographies of fifteen significant figures in the global history of neuroscience who spearheaded important developments in brain science.
